"No doubt another speculative 2+2 = 35.
I wonder whether the authors have answered the question 'what did he have to offer?'
Because the answer is not very much
Kammler was a management specialist. He dealt in architectural questions at WVHA including the building specifications for the Auschwitz crematorium building that included the gas chambers in 1942. In 1944 made responsible for the V-2 missile firings and in 1945, added jet fighter production to his list of jobs trying to mesh men and materiel. A forlorn task in 1945 because Germany did not have the fuel to allow flight operations.
And why would Kammler be treated any different to Speer who was also doing as similar job in Germany industry. Speer was widely interrogated before being released for trial."

Can only agree that lurid headlines are often the reason that something get sold.

“The Hidden Nazi by Dean Reuter is a stunning achievement. This tightly drawn portrait of SS General Hans Kammler takes the reader from his personal life as recalled in interviews with his son through his notorious work supervising construction of underground factories like Mittelwerk-Dora, where Wernher von Braun’s V-2 rockets were built, and at Auschwitz where this ruthless Nazi perfected the gas chambers. Throughout the book Reuter tells a riveting tale of horror, ending with Kammler’s escape from justice. But where to? Finally, I must complement the researchers Colm Lowery and Keith Chester for collecting a massive treasure trove of documents that made this excellent book possible.”

“Justice delayed is justice denied? Not in this case. At long last, and at the skillful hands of Dean Reuter, aparticularly nasty Nazi has been brought before the bar of history for a lasting sort of justice—the measured but stern judgment of a meticulous historian.”
Author: George F. Will, Pulitzer Prize–winning columnist.
